Unfortunately I landed in the middle of The Pacific Ocean and didn't fancy a year in a boat so I plumped for a slightly less random approach and decided South Korea sounded like a reasonable option (why not?). The aim is to teach a bit of English there for a year. Currently I quite enjoy a good cycle so after reading about a guy who cycled home from Siberia, I figured why not cycle to South Korea. I'm no great cyclist, or adventurer for that matter, but saw a great opportunity to see some of the world and to hopefully improve on the bike and the adventuring a bit along the way.
The idea was conceived back in June and since then I have been gradually planning my journey. A few pound sterling later, I have a bike and most of the rest of my kit. I have a gps with a map of the world on it, a plan for obtaining necessary visas, an appointment to have multiple needles stuck in my arm, a few phrases in a few different languages and now a website to let folk know I'm still alive!
What could possibly go wrong?
